'There Was Jesus' – Zach Williams And Dolly Parton Debut Their Official Music Video

In tough times, many of us turn to God and Jesus to make it through the day which causes one's faith to grow even stronger through the trials that one is facing. Recently, Zach Williams was able to express his love for God with the song There Was Jesus which featured the vocal talents of famed country musician Dolly Parton.

Zach William's first hit Chainbreaker is a worship anthem that helped him make his way to fame in the industry. Before discovering God and everything that Christianity had to offer, he had lived many years of his life playing heavy rock and battling an addiction to drugs. It was turning to Jesus that helped him break through these challenges and see that God has always been there for him even through the toughest times of his life. 


“In the waiting, in the searching/ In the healing and the hurting/ Like a blessing buried in the broken pieces /Every minute, every moment /Where I've been and where I'm going /Even when I didn't know it or couldn't see it /There was Jesus”

The words in There Was Jesus carry a powerful message that has resonated with the contemporary Christian artist's fans around the world. Now that he has been able to escape the destructive lifestyle that he had grown accustomed to, he is grateful for everything that he has now and is using the opportunity to inspire others through his music while praising the Lord.

The lyrics of There Was Jesus tell the story of what he went through and the journey that he has taken part in when making the decision to turn to Jesus instead of the dangerous lifestyle that he had been a part of for so many years. When writing the song, he told his producer that Dolly Parton's vocals would be a great addition to the track.

Dolly Parton actually listened to the song just a few weeks later and she immediately knew that it was something that she wanted to be a part of after hearing just the first verse. She agreed to lend her legendary voice to There Was Jesus and the official music video has been reaching the fans of both artists and inspiring them during a difficult time. By sharing this song with their fans, they have managed to give people an inspiring song that spreads a positive message of love and faith.

“For this man who needs amazing kind of grace /For forgiveness at a price, I couldn’t pay/ I’m not perfect so I thank God every day /There was Jesus”

Praise and worship songs have come a long way from what you may be used to hearing in church and have even gained popularity among mainstream music in some cases. Zach Williams is an artist who has managed to cross genres and touch hearts even before working with the legendary Dolly Parton on There Was Jesus. Music can inspire, lift moods, and more important roles in the lives of almost everyone. The life of Zach Williams is proof that you don't need to be perfect to experience the perfect love of God.
